“Create nothing unless it is both necessary and functional. And if this is the case, do not hesitate to make it beautiful.” This principle always adhered to by the Shaker communities perfectly sums up what Extremis does. Extremis does not aspire to simply put beautiful outdoor furniture on the market. Extremis makes “tools” that make life better. More pleasant. These tools must always be functional. And above all always better than the products already available. In Extremis’ designs every single aspect is the fruit of careful consideration. And each design is always a feast for the eye.
Founded in 1994 by Dirk Wynants, Extremis was the result of passion. Passion for design pushed Dirk to create a furniture range that offered so much more than just furniture. Extremis is a brand with a vision. A brand with a mission. A brand that breathes innovation.
TU’G VO THOPE TE ZI’N in the local dialect implies togetherness. By combining intelligent design based on Flemish common sense, Dirk created a whole range of extraordinary outdoor furniture uniting exceptional functionality and timeless design. The result? Much more than just a furniture range: a lifestyle that brings people together. That lets them enjoy life together.
Long before concepts such as sustainable businesses and corporate responsibility became widespread, Extremis was already paying a lot of attention to the three P’s. It does not matter whether you are dealing with personnel, neighbours, customers, or dealers, they are all people who ensure that Extremis can keep on doing what it is good at. Reducing transport volumes, using sustainably managed raw materials, making optimum use of raw materials, or observing quality standards guaranteeing that products last a lifetime: For Extremis it is essential that our planet remains liveable for centuries to come. And profit? Of course. Only a profitable company can achieve these goals.slogan Tools for togetherness (or Tu’g vo thope te zi’n in the local dialect).
